Hosting 2022 FIFA World Cup (WC2022) in Qatar is a mega event that can shape a country's development1. Partnerships as preparedness efforts for mass gatherings within the health system can ensure a safe and efficient practice in hosting countries2,3. This work aims to provide an analysis of the existing literature around partnership frameworks to inform the development of an innovative partnership framework for Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC). In addition, it also discusses the preparedness plan at PHCC for the WC2022 to promote staff and national resilience. Various databases such as Academic Search Complete, Education Research Complete, Medline and Web of Science were used to search for relevant studies from 2010 to 2021. The search strategy consisted of search terms including partnership, framework and health. Moreover, searching was conducted by title, abstract, and full texts, and was limited to studies in English language. The content analysis was performed to analyze the relevant publications. A total of 18 studies were considered. The related literatures were analyzed to present the emerging themes which revealed four major themes: collaboration, engagement, transformation, and risk mitigation. Leveraging the current primary care partnership framework will influence the ability of healthcare professionals to adapt and respond to the upcoming mass gathering. National and international partners must recognize and embrace the need for diverse training programs during the WC2022. The preparedness for the WC2022 calls upon clear assessments from various stakeholders at PHCC that are tied to the needs for emerging roles and services. This work offers a new perspective on the current PHCC partnership framework and provides some recommendations for infrastructure, commissioning, and engagement pathways among future public and private partners. Leveraging PHCC partnership framework and transforming it into a holistic framework of national resilience during mass gathering is of significance.F0001 F0002a F0002b F0002e F0002d F0002e
